Golden Nugget is the perfect name for this macho! We knew right away when he was born that he was destined for great things. As a cria he had very crimpy, dense fleece and a presence about him that shouted "I am going to be an awesome herdsire!"

Nugget's lineage includes Peruvian Aladdin and PPeruvian Pluro on his sire's side and Accoyo/Allianza Peter Tag No 1010 (Peter the Great) and Peruvian Hemingway on his dam's side. From his sire JA Dorado and his dam Miss Emma Belle, he has inherited very dense, crimpy fiber, with excellent handle and brightness. His 2010 blanket weighed 7 lbs! He has excellent coverage from his head to his toes. Nugget also has heavy substance of bone, a characteristic of both parents.

We don't attend many shows, but in those we have entered, Nugget has done very well. His lowest place was second, and he has won three (3) Color Championships, one in halter and one in fleece. In his very first fleece show, Nugget not only took Color Champion in a class of 19, he also took the Judge's Choice Award for the entire show of 109 fleeces!!! We received very nice compliments about his fleece from both the show Superintendent and the Judge, who commented on his score card - "Georgeous Fleece". Nugget's fleece is also holding his fineness. His 2008 histogram had a 18 AFD with a 98.8 Comfort Factor. His 2009 histogram had a 18.5 AFD with a 99.6 Comfort Factor.

Nugget has started his breeding career and has his first cria on the ground. In November 2010, he became the proud father of a beautiful medium brown male cria, out of a medium brown dam. Nugget's "Rocky" has his dad's excellent confirmation, very, very crimpy soft fleece, and he may even exceed the expectations we had for Nugget when he was born. Nugget's first cria is definitely an indication to us that Nugget can pass on his positive traits to his cria. We are already planning on showing Rocky when he is old enough. We are so pleased with the results from his first breeding that we plan to breed several of our unrelated dams to Nugget this Spring.

So, there you go...If you want to add density, crimp, coverage and heavy bone in your next crias, consider what Nugget can do for your breeding program.

Update 3/21/11: Golden Nugget's fiber just won another Color Championship! This one was for the best Huacaya Fawn Fleece at the International Alpaca Odyssey in Ventura, CA. In this show he was competing in the Commercial Fleece Show against the "big guns" in the industry. He was second in scoring only to the Supreme Champion, a weanling (< less than 1 yr old) white Snowmass alpaca. What more can you ask of dark fawn fleece from a 29 month old alpaca male? The judge's comments were "Beautiful well organized character." This boy has got IT!!!
